5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular and Magical
By Vespa on August 16, 2022
Brittany 1821. Grand-Mere Ursule Ochière takes one last drastic action to save the legacy and lives of her family with the use of a magical scrying stone and ancient grimoire.
The story spans over five generations of mothers and daughters who move through a world of danger, secrecy and ignorance while practicing the lessons and rituals passed down over centuries. Daughters are introduced to the rites and spells as they come of age. I love how Louisa also added a “familiar “ to each character.

Some will use the the gifts as a way to protect, save their families while one in particular will tear them apart with her own conniving ways.
This book is well researched and portrays an honest, vivid backdrop of society in the 19th and 20th century.
As we arrive into 1937, daughter Victoria must understand and use her powers with the help of other covens and the Royal family in London. Can they change the outcome of WW2? Will the Ochière line continue?

My favourite characters are Nanette, Ursule, Morwen. These relationships shed many tears but were inspiring.
This is a story of witches, of family, loss, grief and triumph.
